Hi Totaly agree with STONEY 871 post 8. I did this mod a couple of years ago. As I wasn't sure it would get through MOT I swapped the clear lense and red Cree back to red lense with clear bulb for the test and swapped back afterwards. This year I forgot. No problems at Vospers Ford main dealer in Exeter.

In Topic: Parasitic Drain?

I have had a chance to test the parasitic drain on my battery when all is off. Started off at 0.53 amp and over an hour drops to between 180 - 66 mili amps. It continually flickers between to 2 readings. I asume it is the alarm and radio causing this. This looks normal to me.

Hi, I have used the  'as Built data' www site http://www.motorcraf...call&nomenu=yes in the past for my Focus but I am looking at getting some info on a car that my wife is looking at buying but I can't access it any more. Is there another way into this data base. I only have the car reg not it's VIN.

Hi thanks for this info.

I have done a bit of looking at this.The problem measuring the current is that some of the systems remain active for while then go to sleep, but not all. So to avoid waking them up I came across this site http://randysrepairs...tery-drain.html which explains it under 'Computer controlled cars'  I've not tried this yet but I will give it a go soon and let you know what I get initially and after say half an hour. It might be of use in the future.
